View Full Version : Width of Schneider Angulon 120mm f8?

Hi folks,

I recently bought a beautiful Linhof select version of this lens from Jack Flesher, and need to put a lensboard on it. Jack didn't know its width, but I was surprised that it didn't fit into a Copal 0 hole . It needs something just a little bit bigger. It is in a Compur shutter. Does anyone have a specific measurement in mm for what width hole this lens and shutter need? Can one just send it to Calumet for (re)drilling and tell them what lens it's for with the trust that they already have that info, or is is that a non-starter, or too risky? Is there a chart somewhere online for all lenses and what width hole they need for their lensboards?

As always, any info would be great. Thanks in advance!

Do you mean 120mm f:6.8 Angulon, or 120mm f:8 Super-Angulon?

You find information on both of them HERE (http://www.schneideroptics.com/info/vintage_lens_data/large_format_lenses/index.htm).

The SA takes a #0 shutter, the Angulon a #1.

It is the 6.8; my mistake. Thanks, Ole, for a response in record time!
